Limited issue from 1990 has a huge and colorful decal sheet for all three very ornate and colorful aircraft listed. From new molds with 95 pieces, all very fine recessed panel lines, very nicely detailed cockpit and gear wells, optional position canopy, drop tanks, external weapons including AIM-7 Sparrow and AIM-9 AA missiles and a very large, colorful decal sheet for the three aircraft listed. Never started. The parts are either inventoried 100% complete or still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes decals and instructions. From Dusty Rhodes - "The lively fuselage and nose art seen on the box art aircraft commemorates the historic rivalry between the Italian 12th Bomber Squadron (badge = three mice) and the 51st Fighter Squadron (badge = black cat). It particularly refers to a 1938 exercise in which the 51st's G-50s successfully intercepted a simulated attack by the 12th's SM-79s. Prior to the introduction of the G.50, the SM79s had easily outpaced the Cr-32s flown by the 'cats.'"
